Jin Young Ko shot a final-round 3-under 69 to claim a four-shot win at the Cambia Portland Classic.

Ko signed for a blemish-free scorecard which included 16 pars alongside three birdies, highlighted by a long bomb birdie putt on 18 to reach 11-under par.

Due to torrential rainstorms on Friday, Saturday’s third round was canceled, and the tournament was reduced from 72 to 54 holes.

“I really wanted to play yesterday, but we couldn’t play. I tried to make a bogey-free round today, and I made it,” said Ko.

“I had a lot of missed shots and I had a lot of missed chipping or something, so I had to make great par saves, but I made it.”

Jeongeun Lee (69) and Su Oh (69) finished tied for second on 7 under, two clear of Perrine Delacour (69), who sat alone in fourth on 5 under.

Patty Tavatanakit (69), Esther Henseleit (70) and Carlota Ciganda (73) rounded out the top-5 finishers in Oregon.
